A nice copy. ; "Susanna Weber, the elegant and discreet proprietress of her own dressmaking shop plies her trade on quaint Madensky Square. In the spring of 1911, Vienna is a world of romance, music, and gossip, where charming men pay outrageous compliments at the Opera and ancient noblewomen pay for silk petticoats with antique candlesticks. Susanna, at the hub of it all, ministers to a young ugly duckling desperate to become a modest swan, dresses cranky countesses and competitive social butterflies , and tries to convince her anarchist assistant that to marry the man who loves her - capitalist or no - is no political crime."
